We depart early morning on 4wheel drive SUVs toward Sary-Jaz valley through Chon-Ashuu Pass (3822m) with breathtaking views from the top of the pass.

 

On the way there, we will visit Inylchek which is considered to be a lost city and attracts many tourists by its mystery. In Soviet times there was a huge manufactory producing non-ferrous and ferrous metals. We will drive through Inylchek and visit abandoned mine.

Further enjoying with Kara-Tash hot springs with hot radon water, which flows under high black rock. The width of the spring is 4 meters, the length is about 50 meters and the depth is about 1.7-2 meters. The water temperature is about 55C degrees.

 

Inylchek ghost city is located at the confluence of the rivers Sary-jaz and Enylchek. With the closure of the tin mine, the population fell from 5,000 to less than 20 families. At the 2009 census, their population was 345. It lies at the head of one of the few good roads into the southeast of the province and that is why is considered to be a base for mountaineers and serious hikers. 

Taking a hot springs, enjoying with views and driving back to Karakol.  

Abandoned flats at Inylchek town, located 150 km from Karakol on elevation 2500 meters.
